21 in ’21?

If we kick off this new year looking for the unprecedented, we’re likely to see it. How about something new? 21 in ’21!

Walking in the Light

“Walking in the light” means constant obedience to the revealed will of God. In other words, it is doing what you know to be your duty.

Troop Ship or Cruise Ship?

With little thought for such considerations as personal comfort and convenience, a vast number of our Salvationist forebears were willingly deployed to the roughest parts of town – or even the world! – where they’d spit in the devil’s eye and rescue as many as possible from hell.

Mobilize Your Teens for Evangelism During the Pandemic

If your teenagers each identify three unreached friends they could begin praying for on a daily basis it would change their perspective. It would unleash the power of God to prepare the hearts of their unreached teens to hear and accept the gospel.

Effective Ways to Engage Youth with the Gospel

… lasting effects (for working with youth) will come from loving a child unconditionally, nurturing their needs, showing compassion, participating in their lives and investing in their future. It is about intentionally seeking what interests the youth and using that to your advantage to teach the gospel.

Red Balloon Evangelism

In the red-balloon church … everyone saw themselves as an evangelist.

What Do I Do Now?

So, what do we do now?  As a person of faith, a person of purpose within an organization of mission the answer is always the same. 

How Others Do It: Courage for Life

Nearly 220,000 women are incarcerated nationwide, with a population annually rotates approximately 60,000 women in and out. It is a field white unto harvest. The mission of Courage for Life meshes perfectly with the needs of inmates

AND FINALLY…

“With this edition we are pleased to launch a new publication – Rescue the Perishing. As far as we can tell, this is the first time The Salvation Army has devoted a publication solely to evangelism. Other publications have elements of evangelism. The War Cry immediately comes to mind. But this remains the first to inform, motivate and share issues that deal directly with soul-winning, ministry and discipleship.

The reader is asked not to be too critical of the layout or the editorial content – we had to start somewhere! But we hope in the days to come we will improve, while providing inspiring examples of what is going on in corps, among soldiers, Salvation Army programming and using whatever it takes to win people to Christ. We hope that many of you will find your story or that of your corps’ told in the pages of upcoming issues as you labor for the Lord to bring in the harvest.

The United States and the world at large is in desperate need of a Great Awakening. This is not limited to what we think should happen politically, socially, economically or even in the area of social justice, as important as all these are. But we need to see people turn to Christ, so that they can not only have new life in our Lord but to become all that God intended them to be.

The old Salvationist challenged, “Sin is horrid. Chuck it up!” Although our message may not always be that blunt, it needs to be that clear. Jesus died and was resurrected to provide the only way to Heaven. Sincerity won’t work. There are not multiple paths to God. There is but one Savior for all the world. We need to proclaim Him.”
